Routines for ADD/ADHD Children

Transitions are difficult for children with ADD/ADHD, whether going from playing on the computer to doing homework or from the weekend to Monday morning. Create a list of activities and routines with your child. What needs to be done in the morning? In the evening? And in what order? For example:

7 p.m. Complete homework.
7:30 p.m. Get backpack ready and place by the door.
7:30-8:30 p.m. Play on computer.
8:30 p.m. Get ready for bed.
9 p.m. Bedtime.

To keep your child’s busy weeks in focus, use a family schedule or calendar that shows all appointments, sports practices, vacations, school projects, and birthdays/holidays for the month.
